and competent teacher, who has had experience in teaching in the 
Public Schools. 

In order to obtain a first-grade certificate, it is necessary, on exam- 
ination by the County Superintendent of Schools, to make an aver- 
age of ninety per cent, on these studies: 

Spelling (including sounds of letters), 





Arithmetic (Mental and Written), 

Language Lessons, 

English Grammar, 


Elementary Physiology and Hygiene, 

History of North Carolina. 

History of the United States, 

Theory and Practice of Teaching, 

Scho'ol Law of North Carolina,

Atlantic Christian College. 19 

ANALYTICAL GEOMETRY: Newcomb's Elements 
In this class special attention is given to the training of the 
pupil in personal and original work. To this end the assist- 
ance of the teacher is reduced to a minimum and the pupil 
held responsible for the rigid and complete demonstration 
of each article. Neat and accurately drawn charts of curve

taught through an outline which permits the use of any text. 
Special attention is given to the commercial phase of the 
subject. First half of first preparatory year. Either this 
or its equivalent is required for college entrance. 

PHYSIOLOGY: Foster and Shore's Blc::icntary. 

ELEMENTARY PHYSICS : Hoadley's Brief Course. 

BOTANY : Bergen's Foundations of Botany. Classes 
in one of these subjects are organized for the last half of 
each year. In physiology, the subject is taught through an 
outline which permits the use of any text. Much time is 
given to the subject of digestion. Hygiene and the effects 
of narcotics receive considerable attention. 

In Elementary Physics, besides the textual study, the stu- 
dent is encouraged and assisted in devising inexpensive ap- 
paratus for experiment. An effort is made to train the rea- 
soning power rather than the faculty of memory. Labora- 
tory work with manipulation of apparatus and carefully 
kept note book is an essential part of the course in this sub- 

In Botany, careful attention is given to plant analysis, 
the descriptive part of the text being developed inductively 
through plant study. Written descriptions of plants studied 
and pressing and mounting of specimens are required. For 
fiield work, the region around Wilson possesses unusually 
fine material. Laboratory work with microscopes for study 
of the lower order of plants will be provided. 

Two of these subjects are required for college entrance, 
the third being taken in the last half of the Freshman year. 
Required in all courses leading to degrees. 

Physical Geography : Hinman's Eclectic.

Atlantic Christian Collge. 21 

Zoology : Davenport's Introduction and Pillsbury's Biolo- 
gy. Classes in one of these subjects are organized at the 
beginning of each college year and carried for the first half. 
In Physical Geography, the earth is studied in its natural de- 
velopment as fitting it for the home of man. Mathematical 
Geography, Phenomenal Geography and Ethnology are pre- 
sented as being closely related. 

In Geology, the class has access to the fine private col- 
lection of Professor Cole. The student is encouraged to 
make a collection of his own, assistance being rendered in 
identifying and classifying. Special subjects for student 
lectures are assigi:2d, the pupil making careful preparation 
by reference to tke books in the college library, and illustrat- 
ing his subject with personally constructed charts. Excur- 
sions to points of local geological interest are made. 

In Zoology, the study of the text is supplemented by note- 
book drawing by the student, in which the characteristics of 
the more important animal divisions are impressed. The 
laboratory work based upon Pillsbury's Biology is fail and 
complete. The distinction between lower animal and veget- 
able life is carefully made. 

One of these subjects is required for college entrance, the 
other two being taken in the first half of the Sophomore and 
Junior years. Required in all courses leading to degrees. 

Chemistry: Lindsey and Storer. This' term is devoted 
entirely to theoretical and general Chemistry supplemented 
with laboratory work, under the direction of the professor. 
Appropriate experiments are made in connection with ele- 
ments studied, and results noted and compared. Students 
are fully drilled in writing chemical reactions and the solu- 
tion of chemical problems. First half of Freshman year. 
Required in all courses leading to degrees. 

Advanced Chemistry: Seller's and Evans' Analyses. 

22 Atlantic Christian College. 

Advanced Physics : Hasting's and Beech's General. 
Classes in one of these subjects are formed for the last half 
of the year. In Analytical Chemistry, the work begins with 
the simple problems in qualitative analysis, a mastery of the 
theory of analysis being made. The student is then required 
to make a number of typical group analyses according to 
Sellers' Treatise. This is followed by a brief" but practical 
laboratory course in quantitative analysis, basing the practice 
upon Evans' Manual. Practical determinations of oils, wa- 
ter and food are required. 

In Advanced Physics, the pupil is required to make ex- 
tensive text and research investigations in the subject of 
heat, light and electricity, preparing full discussions of re- 
sults obtained by practical work in the laboratory. 

These two subjects are elective. One is taken in Sopho- 
more, the other in Junior year. 


Psychology in Euducation : Roark. In this class a study 
of Elementary Psychology in its special application to teach- 
ing is made. First half of Sophomore year. 

METHOD IN EDUCATION: Roark. In this class 
the psychological application of the study pursued the pre- 
vious term is made to methods. The general foundation 
of all method is studied; and also its application to the 
teaching of the various branches in the school curricula. 
Second half of Sophomore year. 

ART OF TEACHING: White. A careful study of ed- 
ucation in its theory, objects and practical bearings. Also 
another view of method than that of the term preceding. 
First half of Junior year. 

Atlantic Christian College. 23 

ADVANCED PSYCHOLOGY : This is taken in con- 
nection with the regular course class in this subject. 
While it is more abstract than the Psychology in education 
named above, it is at the same time needful to a thorough 
knowledge of the mind as material for the educative process. 
Last half of Junior year. 

HISTORY OF EDUCATION : Painter. . . In this class 
a careful study of various practical and impractical meth- 
ods is studied as historically presented in the lives of the 
educational leaders of ail ages and nations. Entire Senior 


Greek Language and Literature. 

Ordinarily it requires four years to finish this course. 
The first two years are spent in hying a strong and thorough 
foundation for classical scholarship. The grammar is prac- 
tically committed to memory, a good working vocabulary is 
acquired and Xenophon's Anabasis read. 

During the Freshman and Sophomore years the student 
is trained to read Greek with facility and accuracy, and to 
have an insight into philosophy of this language which has 
been such a potent factor in the world's history.

a Bachelor's degree, or have pursued such a course to the 
junior year, will receive the degree of Bachelor of Oratory 
(B. O.,) and those completing the required work in Oratory 
who have finished the Academic work preparatory for the 
Freshman year in this College, will receive a Diploma of 

Atlantic Christian College. 29 


The complete course in this department will embrace four 
years of very careful study, 

I. Sacred History. It is absolutely necessary for the 
minister to know the English Bible in order to be able to 
preach the Gospel to English Speaking People, hence an 
analytical study of the Scriptures will be carefully made. 

II. Bible Geography. Palestine is called "The Fifth 
"Gospel," and itis important to know something of Biblical 
Geography in order to a proper understanding of many 
things which are written in the sacred volume. 

III. Christian Doctrine: This is a subject that has not 
always received the attention which it deserves. There 
are no conflicting Doctrines in the Bible; these are only m 
the heads of fallable men. The Bible reveals the truth in 
regard to a great many subjects which should be carefully 
studied from the Bible standpoint. Comparative text study 
will prove that Bible truth is not conflicting but a unit 

IV. Exegesis. It is one of the greatest of arts to be 
able to logically and critically analyse a passage of scrip- 
ture. Much time should be devoted to this subject, to train 
the mind to analytical reasoning. 

V. Homilctics. The preparation and delivery of ser- 
mons is all important. A full year should be devoted to this 
subject. While what to preach is quite essential, how t© 
preach should not be neglected. 

VI. Church History. One full year should be given t© 
this subject, beginning with the establishment of the early 
church in Jerusalem, and following it in all its changing 
vicissitudes to the present time. 

VII. Christian Evidences : The Word of God yet has 
its enemies, and it is the duty of the young minister to so

prepare himself for his work that he will not be surprised by 
the foe. 

VIII. Christian Philosophy: The "Why?" in regard 
to all forms and phases of religion has ever been urged upon 
the believer and especially upon the minister, for a rational 
solution, and it is not asking too much of the preacher, that 
he stand upon the plane of reason and from the standpoint 
of a real philosopher answer the questions. 


So thorough and practical was our Business School last 
year that many of our students were offered splendid posi- 
tions before they had completed their course of study. 
Thorough instruction in Bookkeeping, Penmanship, Short- 
hand and Typewriting is carefully given. The tuition 
rates in this school are much lower than any other business 
college with which we are acquainted.

fourth on the 27th of March. 

A matriculation fee of $2 will be charged each pupil in 
order to enrollment. 

A medical fee of $3 will be charged each pupil boarding in 
the College, or taking meals there. This pays the doctor'?, 
hills for one year in all ordinary cases. Medicine is extra. 

In cases of sickness, causing the absence of a pupil for at 
least a month, the time wiil be deducted from the tuition 

All bills are payable in advance, and all bills must be set- 
tled before commencement. No Diplomas will be awarded 
until all fees are paid. 

Perfect neatness in dress is all that is required. Every 
girl should endeavor to be a model in neatness, in simplicity 
of dress, in manners, and in diligence and faithfulness as a

The rules and regulations adopted by the State Conven- 
tion will be carried out to the letter. These and a few addi- 
tional rules which the management deems necessary for the 
good of the College will be read before the student body in 
Chapel, and must be observed by both pupils and teachers.

collegiate degrees will be conferred. 


Atlantic Christian College is located at Wilson, N. C, a. 
beautiful little city of six thousand inhabitants. It is situat- 
ed on the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, 55 miles from Ral- 
eigh, and 140 miles from Richmond. Wilson is the business 
centre of Eastern North Carolina and her people are strong 
friends of education. Electric lights, water works, paved 
streets and other conveniences make it an admirable place for

the College. Wilson's superior educational advantages, 
pure climate and varied business interests attract large num- 
bers of people to the city every year. Her homes are beau- 
tiful, her churches are handsome and commodious, and her 
citizens are aggressive, cultured and hospitable. 


The main College building is a beautiful two-story brick 
structure. It is modern in every respect, heated through- 
out by steam, lighted by electricity and completely sewered. 
It fronts 128 feet on Whitehead avenue and 121 feet on 
Lee street. The building surmounts a slight hill and is in 
full view and easily reached from the resident portion of the 
city. Its large auditorium with a seating capacity of over 
500, the spacious dinning hall, chapel, recitation rooms and 
thirty-five well-ventilated bed rooms make it one of the most 
conveniently arranged college buildings in the State. The 
College is furnished throughout with up-to-date furniture 
and fixtures. Every possible effort has been made to make 
it an attractive and happy home for the young ladies who oc- 
cupy it. The buildings stand in the heart of a six-acre cam- 
pus, beautifully shaded by native oak and pine. 


Every morning the students and professors will assemble 
in the College Auditorium for chapel exercises. The servi- 
ces will be conducted by members of the faculty and invited 
ministers of the Gospel. Brief addresses and lectures will 
be given on religions, morals, society, good manners, tern-

perance, the choosing of professions and vocations of life, 
etc. Visitors are always welcome. Students are expected 
to attend religions services at some church on Sundays. 


Students will be allowed to select their own lodging and 
boarding places, subject in all cases to the approval of the 
President. Young men will not be permitted to board in 
any home where the rules of decorum and good order are 
in the least respect disregarded. 


One pair of blankets or comforts, one quilt, three sheets, 
one white bed-spread, one pillow, two pillow cases, towels, 
table napkins, one laundry bag, comb and brush, and any- 
thing she wishes to make her room cozy and attractive, such 
as rugs, sofa pillows, etc. All articles should be marked dis- 
tinctly with the owner's name. 


All candidates for graduation in this institution may 
graduate with honors upon :".e following - conditions: 

I. That they have been in attendance at this College at 
least one scholastic year. 

II. That they refrain from the use of strong drink, or 
any other unbecoming habits. 

III. That they have faithfully complied with the rules and 

Atlantic Christian College 35 

regulations of this institution, as announced during the per- 
iod of their attendance. 

IV. That they have completed the prescribed course of 

VI. That their general average of scholarship is not less 
than eighty-five per cent. 


A number of free scholarships are offered to worthy 
young men of limited means who wish to prepare themselves 
for the Christian ministry. The conditions upon which the 
scholarships will be given will be forwarded upon applica- 
tion. The applications should all be in by September 6th. 


Notwithstanding that this institution is co-educational, 
we want it clearly understood that the young men will not 
room in the College. They will simply attend the various 
class sessions, going to their boarding places when through 
with their recitations. The College building will be the 
young ladies' home, and the campus will be their recreation 


Students should call at the office of the College on Sep- 
tember 6th and register, and make arrangements for the ex- 
penses of one-half the first term, which lasts until January 


36 Atlantic Christian College. 


Life at the College will not be humdrum and monotonous, 
but full of interest, overflowing with good cheer, and crowd- 
ed with honest work. Ample opportunity will be afforded 
for recreation necessary for health and comfort. The home- 
life will be maintained as far as possible. It will not be "all 
play and no work," nor "all work and no play," but work 
will be the rule. "Diligence" will be our watchword, and 
our motto, "Onward by effort." The government will be 
kind and gentle, but firm and unwavering. We want 300 
honest, industrious boys and girls, with high aims, and no- 
ble purposes, and we are not looking for any other kind. 
All such coming to A. C. College will receive a cordial wel- 
come, and all the consideration, kindness, and help that is 
possible to give them. 


Written examinations are held at the close of each term 
and the pupil's grade recorded; 70 in the standard of 100 
must be reached or the subject must be reviewed. 


There are three Literary Societies : The Aletheian, the 
Hesperian and the Demosthenian, which meet once a week. 
Nearly all the students of the College are active members of 
these societies.
